The product offers functionality for scenario management, to help users boost supply-chain resiliency and agility. It draws on the capabilities of Oracle Engineered Systems, including Exadata Database Machine and Elastic Cloud, which can manage the large and complex data sets that are central to in-memory applications. The system allows for the analysis of multiple scenario variations in parallel, to model a particular use case. Oracle has also made available two other In-Memory Applications for Oracle Value Chain Planning: Oracle In-Memory Consumption-Driven Planning, and In-Memory Performance-Driven Planning. The apps are intended to help customers manage larger data volumes, reduce planning cycle times and improve decision-making. Users can better respond to end-customer demand, while analyzing large amounts of supply-chain data to achieve more timely business insights, Oracle said. In another company announcement, the vendor has issued Oracle Outsourced Manufacturing for Discrete Industries. Part of the Oracle E-Business Suite Supply Chain Management family of applications, it enables original equipment manufacturers to track and manage all aspects of their outsourced manufacturing business, with one or many contract manufacturers, Oracle said.
